Synopsis: At last, a book that reveals why alcoholics think, feel and behave the way they do. This book looks into the heart and mind of the alcoholic; it explains their thought processes, how they feel and why they behave so self-destructively. 
 Written by an addictions therapist and recovered alcoholic, it answers the question that every alcoholic and their loved ones have always asked, 'Why do I/they drink this way?'.  It then goes on to offer a solution by explaining how alcoholism is a three part disease: a physical addiction, a psychological craving and obsession, and a spiritual illness, all of which have to be dealt with, especially the little understood spiritual component.  This book, written in easy to understand language, isn't prescriptive but offers a deep understanding of the vital components that drive an alcoholic - and this in turn illuminates the way out. It is simply a must read for any struggling alcoholic and their loved ones.

  •  Live the life you were meant to live.
  • Learn how to mange your feelings to stay away from alcohol.
  • Understand why the alcoholic you love won't stop drinking.
 A must read for anyone who loves someone who drinks too much. Tired and frustrated in trying to help someone who seems to just want to drink their life away? This book will help you understand what they are thinking and feeling and therefore why they drink the way they do. With this information you will clearly be able to see what you can do to love and support your loved one. Recommended by addictions counsellors and treatment centre managers, this book is a great resource for clients early in recovery. Scroll up and grab a copy today. 

About the Author: Veronica has worked as a therapist and life coach specialising in addiction for over ten years; her experience includes working with young people in the criminal justice system, primary care adult treatment, outreach services and private practice. Veronica has also worked in local government, delivering local drug and alcohol strategies. As a recovered alcoholic and drug addict, she has personal experience of what it takes to recover from an addiction. Veronica struggled with alcoholism through most of her twenties. As a binge drinker, she was aware for some time that something was wrong but was unable to define what it was; a chance meeting led to her finally getting help and turning her life around. At the height of her addiction, Veronica was unable to go to work without the aid of a drink; her life and confidence were in tatters. She got sober in 2000 at the age of twenty-seven. She now uses this experience to help and inspire others. She fully believes that all alcoholics and addicts can recover if they have access to the right kind of help, and that they can then go on to live life to the full. She is committed to educating and informing the public on problem drinking and addiction and has appeared regularly on BBC Radio Cambridgeshire as a specialist guest. She has also appeared on the Lorraine Kelly show on ITV, and an ITV programme entitled The Truth About Binge Drinking; she has also appeared in national magazines and publications, discussing recovery from alcoholism.
